A white marble statue of a mother and child, members of the slave-holding Ridgely family. The statue was created as a portrait and still stands on the portico of Hampton Mansion. The Ridgely statue has replaced a statue of the Virgin Mary in this photo of my mother, circa 1960. The Latin inscription I have added roughly translates: "Adore and emulate us."
